Twenty20 Cup for Velding.
Azeem RaVq, 17, played in the crucial North Division group match against Nottinghamshire last month but Yorkshire had not only neglected to register the player as a Vrst-teamer with the England and Wales Cricket Board, but it then emerged he did not hold a British passport.
The ECB's discipline commission panel met at Old TraWord yesterday and ruled Yorkshire would be excluded from the remainder of this season's competition, with Nottinghamshire - beaten by nine wickets in the match RaVq played in - now facing Durham in a quarter-Vnal at Chester-le-Street.
Yorkshire released a statement expressing their frustration at the decision and outlining details of any possible appeal hearing.
It read: "The club are extremely disappointed with this verdict and are currently considering whether to lodge an appeal.
"This decision will be made within the next 24 hours. If an appeal hearing is required it will be held in Taunton on Monday afternoon.
